Khloe Kardashian’s round sunglasses & $3000 Celine purse: cute or unflattering?

I’ve been doing this long enough to know that on any given day, many of you will disagree with me about fashion or styling. I don’t proclaim to be an expert or anything – I’m just a professional blogger (something that my tax guy is still like, “Ugh, can you come up with another job title?”) with an opinion. I often disagree with professional tastemakers and stylists and designers too. One of my biggest peeves is when some style professional tells a big-hipped girl to wear A-line skirts – IMO, A-line skirts always make curvy girls look BIGGER than they are. Anyway…

These are photos of Khloe Kardashian at LAX yesterday. Khloe has consistent style problems, and I think the root of most of her problems are that she believes she should be wearing the same clothes as her smaller sisters. Khloe needs to fundamentally rethink that. She also needs to fundamentally rethink these sunglasses. Because DEAR GOD they are awful.

I think I probably have a similar face shape as Khloe – somewhat baby-faced and round. We look perpetually apple-cheeked. And with that kind of face, these sunglasses, this round frame shape, are such an awful mistake. They make our faces look fuller/chubbier. I learned that when I was a teenager. Why didn’t Khloe learn that years ago? She can’t pull these sunglasses off. And beyond the bad shape for her face… these are just awful sunglasses in general.

I wish Khloe would let me style her. I could make her look so much cuter.

PS… Khloe’s bag is Celine. It costs $3000. I’m a bag person, and I’m not crazy about it. If I’m going to spend $3000 on a purse, it should be a lot cuter than that.

  2. virginia says:

    I am a university student, and I dont even have 3,000 in the bank :( lol

    • Samigirl says:

      Girl, both of my bosses have black cards and I don’t have that in checking. Don’t feel bad ;-)

    • some bitch says:

      What’s up, fellow student? I don’t even have $300 in my account… ha!

      • Bubbling says:

        holla back :) and since I’ll be a teacher I probably won’t have it…ever haha. But honey, best believe- even with my funny money I dress better than Khloe

      • val says:

        Ugh, first year law student here…you can only guess that I do not have anything close to that…such is life. NO talent whatsoever and she can afford everything her little heart desires. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like Khloe, I just get annoyed that some people can virtually do nothing and have the best financial luck in the world. Here I am going to class 9 to 5, Monday through Fri, an hour and a half each way, and there are no guarantees that I will be debt free!!!!! Ugh!!!

      • Katija says:

        I finally have a big girl job after being a career student for seven years. I look at my paychecks and can’t fathom how I could have so much money all at once.

    • oi vey says:

      Pah! Money? What’s that!?

    • belly says:

      I don’t have $30 and I’m not even a student anymore! I had MORE money when I was studying because I had no parasites, erm, I mean darling children.

  3. Krock says:

    Eeeew she looks terrible like that. Those glasses and her hair slicked back is NOT a good look on her. I don’t care how much they cost, they make her look so bad. She needs to stay with the long flowy hair and rectangular sunnies. Her face is too full to pull off sunglasses that shape.

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Those glasses are TRAGIC.

  5. marie says:

    bag yes, glasses not just no but hell no..

  6. N-Bear says:

    I’ve heard the same rule all my round-faced life, but have never seen it so perfectly illustrated. She could do so much better.

  7. Veronica says:

    Ew! The hair reminds me of the slick backed, hairsprayed ponytails I did in 7th grade that make me cringe when I think about now. I agree about the glasses, ugly in general and not working with her face shape. And the bag – if I saw anyone else carrying that I’d assume it was from Target.

    I love Khloe but just hating this look!! We all have our bad days though haha

    • keats says:

      Haha! My first license picture featured me with a slicked back pony. 16-year-old keats had a lot to learn.

  8. Johanna says:

    This is the Kardashian people fawn over because she’s sooo relatable?

    • Dawn says:

      Yes, I don’t get it either. She looks horrible and more than likely acts as bad as she looks. That said I think she looks better then Kim on her best day but that isn’t saying much.

  9. Tiffany27 says:

    Maybe I’m just a tomboy, but why high heels at the airport?
    And I’m getting Willy Wonka vibes from those sunglasses.

    • swack says:

      Sunglasses look horrible. No purse is worth $3000 and heels at the airport because she has to “look good”. Question: Do you really think any celeb walks through the airport? So the heels are not a problem – although I have seen many women in airports with heels on! Honestly, I’m with you – fly as comfortable as I can – tennis shoes are my choice (btw, I’m a tomboy also!).

  10. redd says:

    Someone please tell me, why does anyone need a bag that size?

    • wild flower says:

      It covers up her middle body places perfectly.

    • DM says:

      I have that bag (in brown), and I can safely say as a londoner it is PERFECT. It fits everything I need throughout the day – lunch, bottled water, even my gym clothes sometimes. On the other hand, it would be pointless if I drove…

  11. logan says:

    Once again the rich and somewhat famous show us no class, no style and money can buy ugly.

  12. dorothy says:

    Amazing that people pay so much for such ugly fashions.

  13. Saphana says:

    Looks like a Villain in an Anime.

  14. karen says:

    As a wide hipped girl, I thank you. A-line skirts, no!

    • Pamspam says:

      Thank you! I’m not super big-hipped. I’m much broader on top (like 2 sizes bigger in tops than skirts/pants) and I always hear about how a-line skirts will balance me out. So basically, I should wear something that makes me look bigger? No thanks. They just look matronly!

  15. some bitch says:

    Um, no. Khloe’s bag looks like a budget version of the $40 Kenneth Cole laptop bag I use for class. And those glasses are TERRIBLE.

    The few times in my life I’ve been through Barney’s NY and Holt Renfrew (here in Canada) the most expensive/top luxe brands were underwhelming to say the least.

  16. Luise says:

    Ugh, ugh and ugh.

  17. cassius. says:

    She reminds me of a comic book villain.

  18. DEB says:

    Her lips look like two over-cooked hotdogs about to explode. Sunglasses: major fug.

  19. Sarahbera says:

    That bag is actually Prada if I’m not mistaken, not Celine.

  20. Cathy says:

    Khloe, get rid of the glasses dear, they look hideous on you. That purse is also ewww. How much crap can a person possibly carry that they need a bag that big? Of course the airlines do charge for carryon luggage now, so perhaps she had a change or two of clothing in it to save the $25.00.

  21. Sassy says:

    Glasses are hideous. Bag is kinda cheap looking. I do like her outfit though (but paired with different boots)!

  22. sillyone says:

    Willy Wonka called he is asking for his glasses back.

  23. Hakura says:

    Agree with everyone’s opinions. Glasses should be thrown into the abyss (not just because they don’t suit her face shape, but becase they’re just plain horrendous.)

    Slicked back hair is a no-no too. In fact very few people look good with their hair that way. Definitely reminising my middle school days when everyone was wearing it like that.

  24. Lisa says:

    it is way too early for this shit.

    • TrustMeOnThis says:


      Also, “nude” underwear should NOT show. if you are going to flash that bra strap it should be a color.

      • Lisa says:

        A pop of color would have helped! My nude straps sometimes show, but it’s unintentional. *fixes self*

  25. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Ugh and it’s not even just the terrible shades…that hairstyle/forehead combo!! NOOO not a good look. At all. Lamar should have stopped all that before leaving the house ;)

  26. says:

    And the final insult of this outfit: the bra strap. If you wear an off the shoulder top, wear a strapless bra. Underwear is not meant to be worn as an accessory (I’m looking at you 15 year old girls who think exposing your g-string is so sexy)!!!

  27. TheOneAndOnlyOnly says:

    Fugly and yes iwantshoes the bra strap classy that – Flashdance called and they want their top back. Because these tricks are selfish famehos/whores on the inside, no amount of “designer fashion” can conceal the ugliness.

  28. Andrea says:

    I don’t mind the bra strap or the necklace, but those sunglasses are heinous! Truly ugly. And that purse looks like something I could get at marshall’s for 30 bucks! Sucks she paid 3000 for something THAT ugly.

  29. taxi says:

    The glasses don’t fit! The bridge is half-way down her nose, not at her bridge & divides her face in the wrong place. The lips have grown a lot in the last few years. Visible bra straps are pure tacky.

    Maybe the huge fug bag is to try to hide the breadth of her beam?

  30. tru tru says:

    the glasses are horrible, they make her look like some kind of bug.

    I love Celine bags but that one is drab for 3g’s.

  31. diane says:

    Have you seen the old horror flick “Creature from the Black Lagoon”?
    That’s what she looks like!

  32. PinkG says:

    Those lips look god awful. What is with this family and all the cosmetic procedures? You can’t change the ugly that is on the inside by changing the outside. They are not very bright.

  33. Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

    I want to know who could actually pull these hideous glasses off?!
    As for the bag….meh, I’m not a bag person, I’m a hat person and thank God because it’s a heck of a lot cheaper!

  34. Jill says:

    No one said money meant taste.

  35. itsa says:

    Love you Khloe but the bag looks like it should have a bowling ball inside and the glasses don’t work with your face shape. I feel like people think a huge bag is going to make them look smaller and it actually has the opposite affect. As far as the glasses, she should try more of a rectangular shape so her face doesn’t look so elongated.

  36. Meanchick says:

    Shades are nice, but do NOTHING for her face shape. Also, 3K? C’mon.

  37. debbi says:

    Bag is perfection! Don’t like the sunglasses that much.

  38. the original bellaluna says:

    Those glasses are nothing short of tragic. I will never understand the “superstar idiocracy” that exists regarding sunglasses. (You choose something that’s flattering to your face shape, your hair, and your eyes.)

    And my $3K (plus) is going towards that woven Bottega Veneta bag I want, if it’s still available (which it appears it’s not, so I’ll wait for something else I like).

  39. baja says:

    hahahahahaha, you’re curious about a pig with sunglasses on?

  40. kitty-bye says:

    Kmart special bag & Fug glasses

  41. Suze says:

    Very very few people can pull off the slicked back hair look and pair it with a set of Willy Wonka shades.

    On second thought, I change that to “No one can pull off…”

  42. MinervaKate says:

    Does anyone else think that the hideous glasses and huge-ass $3K bag is a distraction for something else? A pregnancy, perhaps?
